Workbird discovered!!!!!


I was looking for a new lawn tractor on Craigslist when I stumbled upon an antique tractor. It was an odd looking piece with front wheel drive and rear wheel steer. The title of the ad stated 'Work Bird Tractor". I had never heard of such a tractor and quickly called to inquire about the tractor. A couple of days later I had a Workbird sitting in my driveway. This is where the story of the Workbird begins. This blog will be filled with pics of the restoration and the information I find out about these tractors.

  1. I just picked one of these up today. Do you mind if I know how much you paid for yours? The one I bought is in good working condition and has good metal. It also has some parts of the mower deck but the deck its self has comletely rusted away. i would be interested in seeing more pics of the restoration and if maybe get some specs on that snow blade you have so I can try to re create one... as I assume it would be highly unlikely that I would find an original anything out there for this tractor. I plan to restore mine and can get you some pics as well if you like. Thank you.
